Schmidt, Division of Waste Management and Environmental Protection, Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs, Mail Stop T– 8F5, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555– 0001. Telephone: (301) 415–6919; e-mail: dws2@nrc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In September 2006, the NRC staff published Revision 1 of Volume 2 of NUREG–1757, entitled, ‘‘Consolidated Decommissioning Guidance: Characterization, Survey, and Determination of Radiological Criteria,’’ which provides technical guidance on compliance with the radiological criteria for license termination in the NRC’s License Termination Rule (LTR) (Code of Federal Regulations, Title 10, Part 20, Subpart E). Volume 2 is applicable to all licensees subject to the LTR. Volume 2 is one of three volumes of the NUREG–1757 series, which, combined, provide consolidated guidance on decommissioning. The NRC staff considers the development of its guidance as an iterative process. Formal revisions to of NUREG–1757 (i.e., publishing new revised volumes of NUREG–1757) are anticipated in the future. When these revised volumes are developed, the NRC staff intends to publish them as drafts for public comment. Between formal revisions of the NUREG–1757 volumes, errors needing correction or other revisions may be identified and the NRC staff may develop interim guidance and post it on the NRC’s decommissioning web page, to make it available for use by licensees and other stakeholders. During the review of a recently submitted decommissioning plan, proposing decommissioning in accordance with the restricted use provision of the LTR, the NRC staff determined that there are certain errors in Vol. 2 of NUREG–1757, Appendix N. The specific errors concern compliance with the ‘‘as low as is reasonably achievable’’ (ALARA) provisions of the LTR. The guidance being corrected or withdrawn is described below. Error 1. On page N–1 of Appendix N, the first paragraph provides a general introductory discussion of ALARA. In this paragraph, the word ‘‘feasible’’ is used twice when referring to ALARA. The correct word is ‘‘reasonable.’’ E:\FR\FM\16AUN1.SGM 16AUN1
